…Playboy wants you to read Cover to Cover?

Playboy Cover To Cover Archive

Since Marilyn Monroe appeared on the first cover in 1953, Playboy has published more than 650 issues containing more than 100,000 pages. You’d need to sacrifice a whole forest of trees to print each of those issues again though, so Playboy has kindly created the Cover to Cover Archive Hard Drive, a ‘travel-friendly’ 250GB drive that contains every issue ever printed from 1953 to 2010.

…The Mac Mini Pro has been made?

Apple doesn’t make one, so what do you do if you want a mini Mac tower?

Make one yourself.

Seen above are the results of one talented modder’s mission to create a tower out of Mac parts that kept with the general styling of Macputers.

The Mac Mini Pro is built around a Mac Mini, and features an aluminum case that is modeled after the Mac Pro, an additional USB port and power button in the front, and a slide-off side cover that exposes the hard drive for easy swaps.

Paul Stamatiou’s 200 Dollar PC is an impressive piece of tech, and his now completed three part guide means that you can build your own as long as you can follow a relatively simple set of directions.

Specs include 1.2GHz of Intel Celeron power, 1GB of RAM, 250GB of hard drive, and a mini-ITX form factor to keep everything small and compact.

Uses include turning it into an NAS, a HTPC, a File Server, an Internet Termanal, an Art Piece, or anything else that you can think of, since for 200 big ones, you’re basically making a computer experiment.

What will you do with yours?

…The new MacBooks are here?

MacBook

Apple released a yawnable update to their MacBook line today, boosting the speed, the memory, and the hard drive figures, but deflating the hopes of Mac fans who were dreaming of larger and LED lit screens. Someday.
